Hiya.

I have a weird problem going on. I install something,and when I get tired of it,I just uninstall it. But when I remove the folder from my C:\ drive and fully uninstall the program,it still takes up the same space as if it were installed! For example,I have 81% left on my hard drive. I install something and it goes down to like 79%. I install the program and remove the folder and registry stuff but it's STILL 79%. Can anyone help in fixing this? Thanx in advance

Have you tried doing a disk defrag.

I'm not sure how much help this will be, but it will bring your post back to the top.

Then I guess I don't understand the problem...you have a 40 gig drive, you uninstall a program that may be how big.....say 4 or 5 megs? maybe a bit more? a bit less? and it goes from 81 percent to 79 percent?

Nope, not at all.....try uninstalling 3 or 4 programs.....you may see it change a bit....go to my computer, right click on the hard drive, see what shows there for free space, then uninstall something....you will see the change there, the percent value is all relevant.....
